Erwartungen an postsynodales Schreiben

 

Pressemitteilung München/Rom, 7. April 2016

Die KirchenVolksBewegung Wir sind Kirche sieht das postsynodale Schreiben „Amoris laetitia“ („Freude der Liebe“), das am Freitag veröffentlicht wird, als Nagelprobe für die Reformfähigkeit der gesamten Kirche. Nach dem inhaltlich in Vielem enttäuschenden Abschlusspapier („relatio finalis“), das die Bischofssynode Ende Oktober 2015 Papst Franziskus übergab, wird jetzt das Schreiben des Papstes ein erster, aber hoffentlich wegweisender Schritt sein, die jahrhundertealte Fixierung der katholischen Lehre auf eine rechtlich rigorose Sexualmoral zu verändern.

The Media Spokesperson for IMWAC was interviewed for Crux Now last week.

Christian Weisner grew up in Germany in a Catholic family that was profoundly shaped by the Second Vatican Council. In Pope Francis, he sees an opportunity for that historic moment in the Church to be fully realized.

“In many ways, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict, who was head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith 23 years before he became pope, really worked against the Council,” he said. Francis, in contrast, is bringing “the ideas, the principles of the Council, back to Rome, back to our Church.”

It’s that feeling of possibility, Weisner said, that brought him from his home outside Munich to Rome to observe the Synod of Bishops as it deliberates issues important the international movement he helps lead, We Are Church.
